the time that labour was in government, if you were in a private sector rented home and you were in receipt of housing benefits, you did not get any benefit for empty rooms. i think that is important. it is only fair we treat people in social housing the same way. the second point is that if anybody is away from home, obviously their earnings are not counted. therefore the benefits that person are likely to go up. >> mr. speaker, i look forward to explaining why her paying 25 pounds a week more from april is not a tax on her. as for his point about the private rented sector, i think he misunderstands the point of social housing. the purpose is to protect the most vulnerable. according to the government's own figures, 2/3 of the people hit are disabled. let me tell the prime minister about an e-mail i received last week. my wife is disabled, has a degenerative condition and is cared for in bed. due to her illness and my condition, i usually sleep in the spare bedroom. why is it fair for him and hundreds of thousands of others disabled people like him to be hit by the bedroom tax? >> as with
. but is anyone listening? and can government intervention move us out of these terrible times? keynes and roosevelt met only once. each thought the other well meaning but ineffectual. however, they changed the course of the world. what did we learn from the depression? we'll investigate that with the help of economics analyst richard gill on economics usa. hard times. we've seen a lot of them over the years. 1932 and the years that followed were different. the hoover administration tried to popularize the word depression. they thought it a milder word that would soothe the american public. by 1932, hope was about gone. the depression was more than an economic problem. it was human calamity. millions went hungry, some to starvation. proud people begged on street corners asking for pennies to feed their children, for jobs that no longer existed. the economic devastation seemed total. things couldn't possibly get worse, and yet they did. over 4,000 banks failed. the value of stocks dropped from $89 billion to $15 billion. national income dropped. investment, savings, consumption-- everyt
. anti-government demonstrations were met with brutal violence and burma's jails were soon populated by thousands of political prisoners. in 1988, the violence reached its peak. >> but the biggest opportunity for change was probably in 1988 when the whole nation rose up in protest. mostly it was an economic issue, but, of course, they harbored many other feelings against living under a dictatorship. >> after an estimated 3,000 were killed in the uprisings a new military junta promised democratic parliamentary elections would be held in 1990. in that election, aung san suu kyi, nominee for the national league for democracy handily defeated the military candidate. instead, suu ky was put under house arrest where she would spend 15 of the next 21 years. as if to underline what they saw as burma's new era, the generals also changed its name to myanmar. but the u.s. and other western powers refused to recognize the name or the military regime's legitimacy. when the regime continued to ignore election results the u.s. imposed sanctions against burma. they forbid investment in the count

. the national economy is stagnant, and the federal government on which our state has become so dependent over the years is faltering. weighed down by $16 trillion in debt. while new mexico has seen some job gapes in certain private -- job gains in certain private sector industries, there is no question that the number of government jobs is on the decline. last year new mexico lost more than 4,800 government jobs. 400 federal jobs in a single month. on top of that, many private sector companies that contract with the federal government have seen those contracts cut costing us more jobs. unfortunately, it doesn't look like washington, d.c. is going to solve the budget problem anytime soon. it's the fault of both parties, and can it's hurting -- and it's hurting new mexicans. i am committed to working with our delegation to protect our labs and military bases fighting to avoid further cuts. our labs and our bases are not only important to new mexico, but they're critical to the security of america. however, with a federal government that is so far in debt, so dysfunctional we'd be foolish to lea
got a penny from the government, never even asked for it. let me say that i think america has become a country where we want the easy way out on everything. i would suggest that most people in this country have not worked with or in the federal government to actually see how representatives and our representatives in the white house -- and our members and the white house to use that money. it is unbelievable how much money is wasted in this federal government. point number two is that i say to my democratic friends, if you want to pay more taxes you are more than willing and able to do so. there are a group of people that want to pay more taxes, let them pay more taxes. anyone can go ahead and send more money into the government. maybe that will help our system. most families have the budget, but the government doesn't understand the budget. host: for you, no new taxes'? and you think republicans should hold the line on that even if it means these automatic spending cuts go through on march 1? caller: yes i do. i think they should go through. the congress has had three or four years
position .nd your government's i have to say to you here in parliament that the socialist and democrats are a minority -- a minority in the european council. i hear your message, but perhaps you might also pass it onto the heads of state in government in your own party's. that might be a good thing, indeed. [applause] i will make a commitment here to you today. throughout the council, i will continue to quote mrs. dole, the messrs. hunt said if i have to. the others, i'm not sure they will be much help. but i'm happy with what i have heard none the less. it will not all be on my shoulders. i am the head of state and our represent france at the european council negotiating table. i am not going there with rejection in mind only or not to be open to compromise. i am looking for compromise, because i want the youtube project the best image of itself that it can, that is -- i want the european union to project the best image of itself that it can, that is to say, looking at the processes and understanding the doubts that this is have and then taking into his iteration the decisions that are

british foods, stands accused of avoiding paying millions of dollars to the zambian government. this comes from a new report by a u.k. charity. they say that between 2007 and 2012, zambia sugar made pre-tax profits of $123 million. over the period, the firm is claimed to have avoided paying $17 million in corporation tax. that is enough to pay for the school and 40,000 children every year. the parent company, based in london, has strongly denied doing anything illegal or immoral, and distressing how it helped zambia's economy. zambia sugar says between 2008 and 2012 capital allowances-they are used by governments around the world and nothing to do with tax avoidance. they invested around $240 million in zambian operations, creating jobs for 5000 people. action aid says that is not the whole story. they sent 1/3 of their pre-tax profits to tax havens, including a island in the netherlands. >> we think that is not run. 40 percent of zambian children are malnourished. the money the zambian government is not getting from zambia sugar means that is happening much harder. >> some experts say thi
quote the federal government. a pro-government has the greatest possible respect for the holy father for his accomplishments and lifelong work for the catholic church. i think it is fair to say -- shocked, surprised, and also now going back to the initial -- when the pope was appointed, the very basic pride, one of our people got the top job. that is what germans felt and that is certainly what the government -- what people are feeling now. despite a lot of controversy, debate over the way he held the job. >> thank you very much. i will bring reaction from spain in a moment. but based on what steve was having to say -- the duty, whether it be to health or circumstances -- everything he has had to deal with. >> sounds very much he is paving the way for the possibility. he has not broken a rule. several hundred years ago there was a change in canada law that if the pope decided to resign in full freedom -- the key words, it means nobody has pushed him out. if he has done it off of his own -- it is -- a lot of people were saying before that john paul ii for have should have done that to
. we're stuck with this old-fashioned technology because, as susan crawford explains, our government has allowed a few giant conglomerates to rig the rules, raise prices, and stifle competition. just like standard oil in the first gilded age a century ago. in those days, it was muckrakers like ida tarbell and lincoln steffens rattling the cages and calling for fair play. today it's independent thinkers like susan crawford. the big telecom industry wishes she would go away, but she's got a lot of people on her side. in fact, if you go to the white house citizen's petition site, you'll see how fans of "captive audience" are calling on the president to name susan crawford as the next chair of the federal communications commission. "prospect" magazine named her one of the "top ten brains of the digital future," and susan crawford served for a time as a special assistant to president obama for science, technology and innovation. right now she teaches communications law at the benjamin cardozo school of law here in new york city and is a fellow at the roosevelt institute. susan crawford, w
substantially more, on the federal government side, as an inducement to states and local governments to make the investments they need to make. man: but the federal role is going to continue to be diminished because of so many competing demands. so the expectation that the federal government will step in and infuse a lot of capital into water infrastructure, i think, is doubtful. and whether they should or not, i think, will continue to be debated. narrator: where money continues to be elusive, some cities and towns are turning their assets over to private companies, hoping the private sector can find the solutions they cannot. man: in the u.s., roughly 90% of all water and wastewater systems are still publicly owned and publicly managed. the remaining 10% are managed by privately held companies. man: the private sector has learned to become very efficient, and frequently a municipality can save themselves a significant amount of money by bringing in a private company. this is not true in all cases. there are some exceptionally well-run municipalities, but they do have to deal with a city go
single day. we have, as the u.s. government set up lawn characters total burglars where the silver is, in the bottom drawer, and opened the case of beer and watched them do it. if means everything from personal identities, social security numbers to money from banks, to intellectual property. the blueprints for jobs in the next generation with nation states slyke china, and it has gotten exponentially worse, even since the presidential debates. it is unbelievable and breathtaking. the second part of that is the attack part that we're so vulnerable for, actually shutting down our financial services or finding other ways to destroy material in companies that won't allow them to function on a day-to-day basis. and that is very, very concerning. we've seen that recently with iran. >> schieffer: jane what-- are we being attacked now? >> yes. keith islamabad the head alexander has said there have been 19 ear 20 substantial cyber attack in addition the last several years, more to come. i think we're much more vulnerable to a catastrophic cyber attack than a catastrophic terrorist attack in t
thing i think we all can agree on is trust in government is not where it needs to be. so, in the spirit of trust, that spirit of openness, in this fish bowl we're living in, in the spirit of the age of amateurs and citizenship, i'm grateful for your hard work and i'm grateful for your stewardship, a remarkable democracy. not only here in san francisco, throughout the state and of course you represent to the rest of the country. so, thank you all very much. (applause) >> thank you, lieutenant government. -- governor. appreciate your presence and your message. it is important we recognize everybody mixes us up with the criminal grand jury. now we know what the civil grand jury is. thank you. i do have a message of thanks from theedthv the president of the california grand jurors association. unfortunately because of health reasons i cannot attend the grand jury public service announcement narrated by the lieutenant governor gavin newsome. so i cannot be here personally to thank you, i use this message to relay my appreciation and thanks as the president of the california grand jurors ass
women. >> there is great concern among federal workers as the government moves closer and closer to sequestration, which would force significant cutbacks. rebecca cooper is live in our news from. she has the latest on the issue. >> with no deal in sight federal workers are bracing for the impact. without the deal, federal spending could be cut by as much as $948 billion, up over $109 billion per year cut from domestic programs. from training in the fields to medical research in labs, federal workers are being warned to be ready. they think that sequestration is coming. many say the biggest fear is the unknown. this maryland resident is not worry too will lose her job, but she is worried that the local economy will be slowed. >> the district of columbia is heavily dependent on federal workers. is spending cuts are being implemented, that might affect the spending base and money that comes back into the community. >> workers we spoke to told us they are not being told what to expect. >> we are running under -- we do not really what is going to happen. >> still, there are feelings t
.?? >> john, said a funny thing. you said no matter how much the government screws up, caltech will still be caltech and m.i.t. will still be m.i.t. outside the beltway, it is a different reality and you talked about public and private partnerships at the local level. can you talk about why they are so important and maybe share your story about how you see the power partnerships? >> i did not mind it versus the real world. i spend most of my time with the company's seen what kind of problems they're having in what they're struggling with. it's true. in the same way that jeff immelt was not worried about only g e come up but there are a lot of companies out there that you do have to worry about. i'm not worried we're going to get left behind in terms of did creating all of these. we have the smartest people in the world at caltech's and m.i.t.'s. we need to work together to bring that to bear so businesses are doing well and we have jobs. that has been my concern for a long time and it continues to be so. this morning, there is a lot of discussion of partnerships. then we heard about netwo
government to work. and i think that's the way he needs to set it up. i didn't think he did that well in his inaugural address but i think he has another chance here, and if he can make it seem as if, you know, resisting him on finding an alternative to sequestration is being the party of no, the party of the wreckers, i think he's got him in a corner. >> i think if he does go over their heads in congress, which is what he's trying to do on every issue, taking a page from ronald reagan's playbook, i think he can succeed. >> i think what is going to be immigration and gun control is big themes in the inaugural and think those will be the headlines. he traditionally always focused much more on domestic issues, especially at this point. chris: but on the defense stuff, if this country has to suffer a huge cut in manpower, a huge cut in force levels, it seems like it will weaken him politically. >> panetta said furloughing 800,000 civilians will have an impact on the economy, a lot of people. >> jason clapper said our ability to monitor terrorist threats coming at us through intelligence program
milestone. they can continue to seek federal funds and approvals from the federal government. we also have project specific wins, two to highlight, mtc naming the downtown extension of caltrans, as two regional priorities. 500 million committed to the transit performance initiative. this is super important. something that tilly helped generate advocacy. this will allow investment in the urban corridor to make our existing transit infrastructure their work better, trying to identify bart and muni project that will provide more reliable and faster service. also the recent update funds, san francisco transportation plan. this helped develop the prop k expenditure plan. hitting on the ground. it is being done in parallel with the regional transportation plan; the regional transportation plan is giving us feedback and we are providing feedback to both the current plan in the next one down the pike; we just finished one and are already starting the next one. i can move a bit faster now. you can see in the timeline in many cases the authority was the first on the scene to start a new trend.
the government and at the rate it is going, it is going to break all of that. but not if this superhero has anything to say about it. >> anyway, the colorado state treasurer who believes very much in the superhero but is very concerned about the not so superheroics going on in washington. always good to have you. what do you make of this? >> well, neil, welcome back. can give you 15-1/2 trillion reasons why we do have a spending problem. but beyond a spending problem we have a pelosi problem. what i mean by that is we have a collective ignorance on the part of legislative leaders and the presidents a economic advisedders who do not have any kind of business experience, even recognize this is a threat, huge threat, and if you look -- what do people do when they're confronted with the threat? in the private sector, they diagnosis the problem, map it out, and then work to fix the problem -- >> not if they don't see it as a problem. they -- itch the issue is, we see the debt and the deficit, we could address it by just hiking taxes. the underlying spenting isn't the problem. maybe not enough re
is exempt larry in many ways of bloated bureaucracy that our guys face. these are big, government insteads meant to trachsoldiers coming off of the battle feel and transition them, they wait in long lines issue they don't get the care they need, they don't have enough mental health professionals, all they face when a bureaucracy consumes itself. >> here is what the president, barack obama said, here is his promise to veterans, no one who fights overseas for this country should ever have to fight for a job, not just a job he is talking bhe is talking about basics, health care, a career in service, what does he have to show for it? nothing, how would you rate the job we're doing in this country for our veterans right now? >> not good enough. because we have got over 900,000 waiting in line for their claims right now at the va, because the guy like this does not know where to turn, the v.a. provides 5 years of combat health care for a guy like this, there are ways for transition assistance but a lot of people fall through the cracks, the system is full of holes we pump more money into problem
in a free market economy and sanctity of human life and limited government and strong national they didn't hold those views because it would make them more popular and loved by the fellow students. but because they thought through how they could be best be freed. plenty of them disagreed with everything that i stood for and even though hosstudents were respectful and gracious. today a students are not engaged and they fail would to care about their future. flankliip am not sure that a preponderous of stunes were all that totally plugged in either. some of my generation are active to push to 18 year olds to get to vote and racial equalitiity and those i met and other students that i met. they bring in intelligence and passion and thoughtful consideration of others and fire to stee the truth. i was disgusted to hear that people in the conservative movement think our way forward is to moomanipulate the process by destroying candidates with boat loads the of money and we operate establishment republicans and the frat sides of the approach . spend money to those with the conservative win will
of the choice that was made to put in combined sewer systems. narrator: in 1994, the government adopted a combined sewer overflow policy to reduce csos nationwide. cities with combined sewer overflows now face an enforcement action called a consent decree. under a consent decree, a city must reduce pollution levels significantly within a strict time frame or face heavy fines. in 1960, the combined sewer overflows were a perfectly legitimate way of dealing with sewers. woman: the mind set was that, what did it matter if we were sending our waste downstream? water was a good conveyance for pollution. man: sewer systems are installed to reduce public health problems. now what you're doing is transferring the problem, you're transferring it to downstream cities. in addition, cities and towns above pittsburgh were doing the same thing. and then they were affecting the water intakes of pittsburgh. 90% of this region gets its drinking water from those same rivers that we have overflows occurring. hecht: we have sewage overflow with as little as 1/10" inch of rain. and our average storm here is
in non-defense discretionary programs. and dd programs are core government functions provided for the benefit of all including public health and safety, law enforcement, education and job training, veterans services, medical and scientific research, weather monitoring and environmental protection, natural resources, housing and social services and transportation and infrastructure. ndd is pleased and honored to join with the aerospacaerospac e industries association and its unprecedented effort to stop sequestration and find a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not include further cuts to discretionary programs. both defense and non-defense programs are equally critical to economic growth and the safety and security of our nation. these discretionary programs are not the reason for our growing debt and yet so far they have been the only place lawmakers have been willing to cut by $1.5 trillion today. non-defense programs alone have been cut a $900 billion bringing spending on these programs to levels not seen since eisenhower was president. as we saw from the whi

to defend themselves from either government forces or other forces that endanger their lives. >> if the government attacked you, it would be the military. it would be with machine guns. you support that ban but you're not prepared for a ban on military style. >> a lot of people use this phrase military style when in reality it's nothing more than a semi automatic weapon used for deer hunting. >> i can buy a slide device over there which would allow me to fire up to 300 rounds a minute. what is your definition of an assault rife given i can legally buy that here and kill 300 people in one minute? >> first, i think that any texan has a right to be able to purchase one of those weapons. when it comes to talk about limiting our right, we need to have the right to defend ourselves when ever anyone tries to attack us. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> coming up, i'll talk to two people who believe concealed weapons and the nra save lives plus ted nugent. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why at libe
confidence in government 's the ability to be a positive force in their lives. >> evan, according to the congressional budget office, the deficit is shrinking and will continue for a while, but it will increase later because of an aging population and expansion of federal subsidies. cbo is predicting that by 2023, ifs continue -- if current laws continue, it will be on an upward path and tell that to your children and grandchildren. >> paul krugman has convinced a lot of my liberal friends that it is okay to kick this down the road. >> he actually used those words. >> terrible idea. it courts all kinds of disasters. sounded -- the interest rate spikes. it takes a long time to fix these problems. sequestration is a crude, ugly tool, but if it had the effect of making people get serious about entitlement reform, it would not be so bad. >> colby, what do you think? >> going back to charles' column, he says that it is the first time since the election the president obama has been on the defense. i don't think that is true. i agree with mark on this, that republicans will bear the brun
coalition in order to be more effective we reached out to a large variety of the government sectors. in february 2008 the jewish coalition held a conference against human trafficking which included agencies such as the san francisco commission on the status of women, representative of the mayor's office and other nonprofits. this event also attracted members of the state assembly and a few congressional offices. at a meeting following our conference a i was asked to chair the larger group and my condition was that there be a cochair from the mayor's office at that time was catherine dodd. the san francisco collaborative against human traffic was born. in 2010 - from the beginning emily morassie (sounds like) executive director of the san francisco commission on the status of women was always involved as well as theresa sparks, executive director of the human rights commission. they were not only the core of the beginning but also generously offered to help us and support us and today that is where we are housed. we have a membership of over 28 agencies public and private repr
